It was confirmed on the 10th of July that Leeds United legend and England 1966 World Cup winner Jack Charlton sadly passed away. The defender had an amazing career, spending all of his 23 years of playing days at Leeds United. He played 629 games, scoring 70 goals and capturing 6 trophies including the old First Division league title. He also earned 34 caps for England and scored 6 goals during his run on the international squad.
Jack will be remembered as one of the key players for England when they captured the World Cup but he will always have a special place in the hearts of many Leeds United faithful. Charlton, the older brother of Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton, was voted into Leeds’ all-time greatest XI in 2006.
Charlton became a manager after his playing days were over. He managed teams such as Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Sheffield Wednesday and The Republic of Ireland’s National Side. He won English manager of the year in 1974.
Jack will be remembered by all football fanatics and he would be proud to have seen where Leeds United finds themselves this year.
From all of us at All Everything Entertainment we would like to pass our condolences to his family and friends.
